I don't know how I feel about this yet. On one hand it sounds great having guys that Stevens knows, and on the other hand. Sometimes you have to ask the question. Are these the best guys, or is about who you know? A little bit of both maybe. Nored is the next Butler guy for Stevens, who already has 23-year-old statistician Drew Cannon for an yet-undetermined
analysis role and 36-year-old Micah Shrewsberry as an assistant coach. This staff so far is young, for a young team. That's either really bad, or really good. I would honestly like a veteran NBA coach with either assistant experience, or even some head coaching experience. The guys that have been brought in are guys that seem to be specialist, and it seems like they won't interact much with the players, but more with Stevens. The staff is far from finished,but I'm a little worried about the staff that's being formed. I feel confident in Stevens, but for a new coach, it's nice to have someone to speak to, unless Ainge plans on being more hands on with Stevens as a mentor.
The Boston Celtics have hired former Butler guard Ronald Nored in a player development role, a source told ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman.
The 23-year-old Nored, a guard on Butler's two Final Four teams coached by new Celtics coach Brad Stevens, is also expected to have a role with the Maine Red Claws, Boston's D-League affiliate.
Despite his age, Nored is considered a rising star in the coaching ranks and spent his post-Butler days as an assistant at the University of South Alabama and coaching high school ball outside of Indianapolis.
